Well, the winter Olympics have started. The opening ceremonies were pretty cool.
A speed skater in the Olympics goes to my high school alma mater, so I am VERY happy that my town is represented this year.
I was surprised that the snowboarder Shaun White cut his hair. I loved his long curly hair; he looked good like that. He looks good with short hair too, but I like guys with long hair.
A few of the American athletes have already won Gold medals in their respective sports, so I'm happy.
I prefer the summer Olympics to the winter, as I am a warm weather person, but I like watching the winter Olympics as well.
Watching the snowboarding events has inspired me to want to try to learn how to snowboard.
The skiing events remind of of when I was in eighth grade, when the gym teachers took those who were interested, to a ski resort in Wisconsin, for a day of skiing.
I did alright until I got to the ski lift. I fell down as I was getting off of it at the top, which was VERY embarrassing for me. But, I got over it, and enjoyed the rest of the day.
I'm not an athletic person, but it's always fun to watch sports events, especially the Olympics.
